Hi guys, my name is Darrel, and I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline. Thanks for taking some time to tune in and have a quick look at one of our product review videos. I'm putting these short little videos together to be able to give you, our customers, a bit more informed decision making processes in regards to the products we have to offer and hopefully allow you see it in the flesh, so to speak.
Today, I'm going to talk to you about this casement restrictor, this window restrictor that we have on our website. It is manufactured by the company AXA Flex. Basically, it allows you either through a fan-like, or casement window, or one that operates like that to allow you to open the window up to a fixed distance. It won't allow you to open the window all the way. It is designed to restrict the amount of opening of a window.
The idea is that this here will be screwed onto the base. This can pivot completely so you can decide exactly where you want this to be fitted. This is also adjustable, as you can see. You have some screw fixings here, which will hold on to the window. If you can imagine a fan-type casement window that moves like this. This would screw down onto the base, and this would screw into the window. This would allow you to lift the window out like this, until it is absolutely in this distance here, as you can see. Now you have a distance from here to here. I will measure it for you, to give you an idea. I'm going to measure from the screw centres to the furthest projection. It is about 164 millimetres. From the screw centres to there it is about 164 millimetres. That is the basic principal on how it works.
When you want to close it, it is quite difficult to do it here, because normally it would be fixed to the window. That would then pull itself back in and close into position. As you can see here, the actual fixing is at 90 degree. So, you can imagine the window coming into and engaged here. This would be screwed down into the frame. This would be screwed onto the window. To try and mimic that operation again. You lift this up there like that. This will actually pivot down, allowing you to fix it to the window. As you push it, you push it out like that. Eventually, it will sit back into that position here.
Now depending obviously on the size of the window, you may need one or two. There's also one available on our site that has an adjustable position here, which allows you about 8 mm of flexibility in regards to fitting it on to the actual window.
Finished in this lovely polished stainless-steel, as you can see here. It has the black handle there. It's quite stiff to operate here, once it's freed up a bit and actually fitted, it begins to feel quite smooth and more refined.
There you go guys. There's not much more than I can say about that. The actual fixing and measurements are on our website. Bear in mind, these don't come with screws. You need to consider getting screws that's relevant to your particular type of window. An inch and quarter size 8 or something similar. If you need more information on this or any of the products that we have on our website, by all means, send us an email, use the live chat that we have, or simply do it the old fashion way and pick up the phone and give us a call. Either way, we'd love to hear from you, and more importantly we'd love you see you as one of our customers.
So from me, Darrel, and all of us at the team, thanks very much for taking the time to tune in. We hope to catch up with you real soon. Take care now, bye-bye.
